The Memory Trick Making Computers Seem Smarter One startup’s approach to teaching computers to learn shows the value of applying new ideas to machine learning. After several decades in the doldrums, AI is experiencing quite a renaissance. In recent years, amazing progress has been made using so-called deep learning, training algorithms with large amounts of data so that they can recognize subtle patterns. Such approaches have enabled computers to recognize faces in an image or the text of speech, often with eerily human accuracy. It’s becoming clear, however, that fundamentally new approaches will be needed if machines are to go demonstrate more meaningful intelligence. One technique, being applied by a Silicon Valley startup called MetaMind, shows how adding novel memory capabilities to deep learning can produce impressive results when it comes…
